IDENTIFYING ATTORNEY-GENERALS

So far I have identified 300 lawyer-generals who served in the Civil War. I know that I have overlooked many others.I originally omitted any lawyer-general who graduated from a military academy. This list does not  include generals like William Tecumseh Sherman, who graduated from West Point but practiced law prior to the Civil War. I have decided to expand my search to include all lawyer-generals, even those who graduated from military academies. Below is a list of the lawyer-generals whom I have identified. If anyone reading this blog post knows of a lawyer-general whom I have omitted, please notify me.
